Thanks to Lisa Davis Doran and True Love Tattoo Studio we are having another Tattoo Party!! Lisa and True Love will donate a percentage of each tattoo bought to PugHearts. After tattoos, we will meet for drinks, food and laughs most likely at Tookies.....

As in previous years, the studio will have some Pug templates, but if you have a particular tattoo you want be sure and bring pictures. If you are considering a big tattoo, I suggest meeting about your artwork before the party. Please keep in mind that there are limited chairs and artist so this is a limited space people only event. as always you can visit the shop before or after the party and let them know you are with PugHearts and Lisa will still donate a percentage of the tattoo you receive.
